Loudonville, OH

Loudonville, Ohio
Mohican Reservation Campgrounds & Canoeing
Back IN Site #41

What's with all these early hours?  Bill and I pulled out of Elkhart County Fairgrounds about 7:30 am.  We had an appointment with Tom at D & T RV Repair to have our skylight replaced from our encounter with a low hanging tree branch in Missouri.  As we pulled in they were just opening the doors for business.  

Since we knew we had to wait we decided to go do laundry.  As we were driving through Goshen I spotted a barber pole.  This one didn't have a number to call for an appointment.  Bill walked in and 45 minutes later he had shorter hair and $11 less in his pocket.  He said he knew the whole life story of the girl by the time she finished.  

Around 10:30 we returned to D & T with our clean laundry.  They were up on the roof sealing the skylight.  I neglected to mention that they also worked on my coax for the bedroom satellite connection. I didn't want to wait last October when they did some other work for Montana, so I told them I'd stop back in when we came to the Escapade.   They told us it would be about 30 minutes before they were finished.  Bill was smiling!  Enough time for one more meal from the Lux Cafe.  

It wasn't quite noon when we pulled out of Goshen with full bellies.  Bill drove today and took highway 33 to Fort Wayne and then came across US highway 30.  We are just south of Mansfield at a Passport America park on the Mohican River in Loudonville.  

Notice the construction on US 30 on the Indiana side of the border.  When we crossed into Ohio, they haven't even touched the condition of their roads.

The park is almost empty but what a beautiful setting.  Right outside our rear window is where the canoes trips end.  They have a livery here that does 23 miles, 14 miles and 9 miles canoe, kayak, raft and tube trips.  I'm sure by this weekend this place will be packed.  Their rates are very reasonable.  PA rate for 50 amp electric and water is $17.50.  

The view out our rear window.  

Those aren't a stack of yellow bananas, they are canoes and kayaks waiting for the weekend.  (Sorry about the glare from the windshield.)

Loudonville is a very quaint town with an inviting Main Street.  The town is celebrating it's 200 year anniversary.  

Not sure what our plans are.  I paid for one day and we can stay on the PA rate until Friday.
